Toddler Playschool: S is for Space {free printable}

Pin It
The topic of space always seems to bring up so much wonder in children and adults alike. It has so much to explore and endless possibilities as far as learning activities. That's what makes it a great theme for a toddle lesson plan for the letter S. So I've put together some fun space-themed toddler learning activities for you to download and use. 
 
 
This curriculum is ideal for 2-3 year olds. We'll be reinforcing colors and shapes and introducing letters and numbers. There will also be exploration of different themes each week as we proceed through the alphabet. It provides a flexible framework of activity ideas that can used in the home or classroom.

Big Round Moon (by Andie Jaye)
(Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star tune)
Shining, shining, big round moon
How I hope to see you soon
When you show your glowing light
It is time to go night-night
Shining, shining, big round moon
How I hope to see you soon

This Little Star of Mine
(This Little Light of Mine tune)
This little star of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little star of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
This little star of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine

Literacy
S Page for Alphabet Book
Create a page for the alphabet book. Each page is blank except for the week's letter. Children can be provided with an open-ended activity to decorate the page of their book.  Or you can use the suggested activities to set up an activity to create the page. Once done, pages can be laminated and bound with spiral binding or rings. You can find a template for this book here.
